Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 14
Uzomah has quietly drawn 6 targets in 2 straight games. After ranking 4th on the team in a loss to the Chargers, he checked in 3rd in Sunday’s narrow loss to the 49ers. Those 12 targets made up a solid 16.2% of Joe Burrow’s pass attempts. Those 2 games have also featured Uzomah’s 2 largest snap shares of the season (87% apiece).

Uzomah caught 4 balls for 56 yards against a 49ers defense that has presented a negative scoring matchup for TEs. Denver – in Week 15 – has been even tougher, arriving as the 2nd-worst scoring matchup for the position by our adjusted fantasy points allowed. But Uzomah carries some sleeper potential against Baltimore in Week 16 and Kansas City in Week 17.
Week 8
Uzomah has carved out a nice role for himself in the Bengals passing attack. In Week 8, Uzomah was 3rd on the team in routes with 32, only 1 behind Tee Higgins. This usage didn’t show up much in the box score as Uzomah only caught 4-33 on the day. The bigger takeaway is Uzomah was the only TE to see a target. This is very rare usage as many teams use multiple TEs. This will make Uzomah a streamer when he has plus matchups.
That opportunity to use Uzomah might be this week vs. the Browns as they have been average vs. TEs. This includes allowing a solid fantasy day to Pat Freiermuth (4-44-1) just last week. This could make Uzomah a streamer for anyone using Ricky Seals-Jones and T.J. Hockenson over the past few weeks.
Week 4
Don’t buy it.

Uzomah is a nice combo of size (6’5, 263) and speed (80th-percentile 40-yard dash for the position). He’s also in his 7th NFL season, has averaged 1.8 receptions per game for his career and more than doubled his target count for this season against the Jags.

Uzomah checked in 3rd among Bengals with 6 looks and caught 5 of them for 95 yards. The biggest strike was a 31-yard catch-and-run TD in the 4th quarter. He also took a short 3rd-quarter throw 22 yards into the end zone. Uzomah added his final 2 receptions on Cincinnati’s game-ending drive that produced the winning FG.

Uzomah certainly looked good in posting his Week 4 numbers. And he caught 4 passes in each of 2 games with then-rookie Joe Burrow before tearing his right Achilles’ tendon early last season. So maybe the TE can prove fantasy relevant the rest of the way.

But his best hope once Tee Higgins returns -- expected this week -- is to settle in as the 4th receiving option in a run-leaning offense. That’s not the kind of guy to trust on a weekly basis in common, 1-TE fantasy lineups.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee, hip) is questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. He didn’t practice all week and seems unlikely to play with Cincinnati resting starters in this one. Uzomah’s absence would leave Drew Sample as the Bengals’ top TE.

According to Chris Roling of Bengals Wire, Cincinnati coaches have indicated that "roughly 50 catches wouldn't be a surprise" for TE C.J. Uzomah this season. That's not an exciting level, just 2.9 receptions per game. But it would have tied for 19th among TEs last year. So keep Uzomah in mind as a fill-in option or late stash in a TE-premium format.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah declared himself 100% recovered from last year's torn Achilles and was a full-go in OTAs and minicamp, according to The Athletic's Paul Dehner. Uzomah opened last season as Cincinnati's starter, tallying 11 targets before going down in Week 2. Dehner confirms that Uzomah is expected to play ahead of TE Drew Sample this year -- assuming he regains pre-injury form. A pass-heavy Bengals offense helps Uzomah's fantasy outlook. But he figures to be battling RB Joe Mixon for the title of 4th option in the passing game behind WRs Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah left in the 4th quarter of Thursday night's game against the Browns. The team quickly ruled him out with an Achilles' injury, which doesn't seem like a good sign for his long-term outlook. If Uzomah misses an extended period, 2nd-year TE Drew Sample would find extra targets available.

The Bengals have reached a 3-year deal with TE C.J. Uzomah to keep him from hitting the open market, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The contract will be worth "more than" $18 million. That's pretty solid money for a TE with 79 catches through 4 seasons and indicates Uzomah will hit 2019 as Cincinnati's lead pass-catcher at the position. We'll see whether free-agent TE Tyler Eifert gets another shot.
